The Weekender

Shandies, Purple Pancakes and Reading by the Pool

Gonna be some sweet sounds, coming down, on the weekend.

Thursday
It’s Miami Spice. Here’s What You Do.
SPICE OF LIFE

It’s Miami Spice. Here’s What You Do.

It’s that time of year again. When our city loses it over three-course lunch and dinner specials around town. Yes, it’s Miami Spice. Your game plan: Makoto for short rib yaki udon, BLT for the surf-and-turf sushi roll and Bourbon Steak for the... kung pao chicken. Kidding, it’s steak. Go for the steak.

Aug 1-Sep 30, Miami Spice, various locations throughout the city

Friday
Your Mornings: Now with More Steak
BREAKFAST CLUB

Your Mornings: Now with More Steak

Breakfast. It’s important stuff. You know this. So really, there’s no excuse for your half-eaten Pop-Tart routine now that SushiSamba’s rolling out stuff like chicha morada pancakes, steak and eggs, and a batida bar starting at 7am. Hey, early bird gets the... chicha morada pancakes.

Daily, 7-11am, SushiSamba, 180 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables, 305-448-4990

Lester’s Gets in the Cocktail Game
’TAIL END

Lester’s Gets in the Cocktail Game

Coffee, indie books, foreign journals. Yup, that’s Lester’s. But cocktails: umm... no. Well, until tomorrow. That’s when you’ll find a menu full of fizzy sangrias, shandies and glasses of chocolate stout with shots of espresso thrown in for good measure. Caffeine, alcohol, should be fine.

Sunday
Your Sundays Require This Brunch
SALUTE YOUR SCHWARTZ

Your Sundays Require This Brunch

Bacon sticky buns. Bacon. Sticky. Buns. Now that we’ve got your attention... there’s some new brunch action happening at Restaurant Michael Schwartz. And by action, we’re talking about taking down some lemon ricotta pancakes, tangerine-custard french toast and the aforementioned bacon buns. You know, for the protein.

Bookleggers Turns One. You Drink.
BACK TO POOL

Bookleggers Turns One. You Drink.

Hey, it’s Bookleggers’ first anniversary. To celebrate, they’re bringing their roving library to the Freehand for a pool party. So go. Grab a gratis book. Sip some Broken Shaker cocktails. And later, watch a screening of The Ninth Gate by the pool. Johnny Depp, books... makes perfect sense.

Aug 4, 3pm, Freehand Miami, 2727 Indian Creek Dr, Miami Beach, 305-531-2727
